    The cold

    Hello all. It is supposed to be 42 degrees today and I was wondering if that is to cold to break in my new jato. Any response would be cool especially if I get it before then
    Thanks all,
    Mike

    you can break it in when its cold just some people use aluminum foil around the head of the motor to keep it at regular running temp. you have to keep it at normal running temp when breaking it in. if you watch the break in video it will tell you the normarl running temp.

    I was breaking in my 3.3 tonight in 20cm of snow lol. I put a small sock over the head to keep in the heat. But yes, pre-heat the engine (hair dryer works great if no heat gun).

    I actually like the tires, they have good traction on asphalt. If you sit and spin the tires all the time, no tire will last regardless of who makes them. Just my opinion of course.

    I have had my street Jato for over a year and the tires are just now needing to be replaced on the rear.
